    Great first pic LH.

    Reminds of when we were outrunning a squall line in west central Texas last May which had a shelf cloud which stretched from the south horizon to the north horizon.

    Ello,

    Quality picture.. but the what i find intreguing is the clearly visable curvature of the cloud just above the shelf prooving this to be a supercell, i got to ask you, by any chance did this baby spawn any tornadoes?

    Hi Iceagian,

    Yes it did have a slight 'bow' to it, but that doesn't make it a supercell. The storm had developed before sunset, and the storm was becoming outflow dominant. The gust front surged out south-westwards, lifting up some stable air creating the smooth shelf as it rushed overhead.

    It didn't even give any rain at my location, but there was a deluge just to the east and north as it was quite slow moving. I haven't heard any reports of any funnels or tornadoes and it certainly didn't produce anything whilst I was there, albeit late in it's life.

    btw, the full story with more pics is now on my website here:

    • August thunderstorms bring the risk of flooding and disruption

      Any rain should be welcome looking at the parched ground but intense downpours aren't enough. Thunderstorms bring the risk of flash flooding as the rain hits the hard, dry ground. Read the full update here
